England’s largest festival of history and culture is back with loads of free behind-the-scenes events at a range of unusual London landmarks. Here’s our pick of the best bits to see this weekend.
It’s your last chance to see the enormous Design Museum exhibition dedicated to the life and films of Stanley Kubrick, so good we gave it a whopping five stars. See original props, posters, costumes and storyboards from ‘A Clockwork Orange’, ‘Lolita’ and ‘The Shining’. Separate truth from fiction (and lunar myths) at this dazzling foray through the great man’s work.
Cuddle up in your fave cinema this weekend to this big old comfort blanket of a movie stitched together from vignettes involving missing paper knives, a problematic ball gown and an unfortunate outbreak of rain. It’s as nourishing as one of Mrs Patmore’s crumpets, and about as edgy, but fans of the much-loved TV show will love it.
The Swedish are crazy about crayfish - and they celebrate the annual harvest at rowdy, sing-a-long parties. Join them on Saturday for drinks, and plenty of seafood at London Swedes Kräftskiva's party at Smith’s Bar and Grill in Paddington.
Find time this weekend to see the gorgeous photography by a young artist who died too soon. This is art about belonging to and navigating the world.
Sink your weekend drinks at this whisky bar-pub that looks like a Japanese izakaya. Go for the highball drinks that take whisky soda to a whole new level.
Catch Lucy Prebble’s metaplay about the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko. It’s a surreal and brilliant drama about the madness of our times.

Costume jewellery, vintage fabrics, salvaged furniture and reclaimed fixtures and fittings will all be on the menu at this second-hand staple. Who knows? You might just find the shelving unit of your dreams to replace that tatty Ikea one you’ve been lugging around since uni days.
Get up close and admire the intricate beauty of Big Chief Demond Melancon of the Young Seminole Hunters’ massive Mardi Gras Indian suits. It’s the first time the creations will be on display outside of the US, so make sure you don’t Miss-issippi them!
